A new family portrait commission

Meg's Family
9" x 12" x 1.5"
Oil with a palette knife on cradled Blick Studio Artist Board
SOLD

My sister asked if I would paint this for her boss who is leaving her position to go back to teaching this year. What a good looking family, huh? I love that the dog is looking at them instead of the camera. Too funny. Apparently they take the same family picture every year.

I painted the faces first since I knew that would be the toughest part to get right. I remembered to take a photo of it before I completed it the next day. I think it looks kind of interesting with just the five heads floating on the orange background.

My sister plans to give it to her this week. Hope she likes it!

You did a masterful job, Ann! Is this done completely with a palette knife? Amazing!
